{Engaged} Jessica + John’s Engagement at the Philadelphia Art Museum | Philadelphia Engagement Photographer

Happy Valentine’s Day (well, 1 day late)! With Valentine’s Day being yesterday I thought about all the beautiful couples out there getting engaged. I’m definitely getting excited and looking forward to hearing some of those sweet proposal stories! Which got me thinking that I hadn’t yet posted this engagement with Jessica and John on the blog. These two were so cute together and just two really nice people. They flew up from Miami to have their engagement session taken in the city where they fell in love. We had great conversation and I really enjoyed our time together. The day was a bit chilly but it gave them more reason to snuggle up to keep each other warm :) Here are just a few of my favorites from their shoot. Hope you enjoy!

{Newborn/Family} Baby Sophia in Philadelphia | Philadelphia Newborn and Family Lifestyle Photographer

This time of year obviously makes everyone you know what to cuddle up in some warm pajamas and sit in front of a toasty fire. Sound amazing, right? Well I know of something even better. Cuddling up with a newborn baby :) Having a baby in the winter is personally my favorite, and especially if it’s your first. I have two winter babies myself and there is nothing more rewarding than being cooped up in your warm and cozy house, snuggling your little one and watching the snow fall outside. Recently, I met up with Christine, Greg, Baby Sophia and pup Kora for their newborn/family/lifestyle session. Sophia has an amazingly natural-lit nursery so we chose to snap some memorable photos of this beautiful little girl and her wonderful family there (including some funny ones of their sweet puppy!). Here are some of my favorites. Hope you enjoy!
